Fall activities: Apple Bites

In the fall my grandparents and i ALWAYS used to go to the 
Apple orchard
and raid it
we would buy apple EVERYTHING
now i live in Louisiana
sadly i don't even think they have one :(

So now i just find things i can do with apples on my own!
I did a baked apple post (here) 
and they were DELICIOUS
then i tired to make apple chips
and burned them :(
However Kelly and Tiramisu did not burn them and loves them

Next apple idea:

Just downloaded: Good Feelin

Good vibes

A classic: Breakfast at Tiffanys

The other night the boo and i watched
Breakfast at Tiffanys
we were both so excited because it is deemed a classic
it resulted with the boo falling asleep 
and i was perplexed
(the fashion is what kept me awake)
i appreciate older films
i just did not understand why this was so great
so i set out to do some research googling
and i feel so ashamed that i didn't know it was a book 
and this truly is one of those movies 
where the movie leaves out some major themes of the book

There are themes of 
-stability and freedom
-nature vs culture
- diversity of love
- and apparently massive amounts of symbolism

so now Breakfast at Tiffanys is on the book list


I am really interested in watching more classic movies
plus the boo and i are having a shut in weekend 
filled with movies and ordering pizza

Movie Suggestions?

The fur vest

Reading Recommendation: One Day

I originally saw the book One Day 
 recommended on another bloggers page 
and said
"Mental note: Read it"
that mental note didn't stick until
i went home and was at a nail salon with my mom and aunt and saw someone reading 
the book
so then i bought it on my next flight
and i LOVED it

I am not the best at describing why you should ready books but i also think i am pretty picky when it comes to keeping my attention or me even liking books and this one did that.
It does start a little slow but then it becomes fun to connect with the characters.
With this book it is interesting to see where the characters are at in different stages of their lives and how they continue to weave in and out of each others lives.
I will say this book TOTALLY shocked me at the end
and made me cry 
I am even more excited to see the movie

I make myself laugh

This past week was my finals week for term 1 of my last year!
(yay thank you jesus its my last year)
However i SUPER procrastinated and had tons of papers on top of my finals
which was no fun
i think i did homework for three days straight
so to cheer myself up
in between the success of one completed task and the dreading of another 
i baked cookies

and made one have a smily face
and put it in the cookie jar so its staring right at me
and honestly
it makes me laugh every time i open the cookie jar

Aw the little things :)

World Bag

So my boo got this for me for my birthday

The story behind this bag
My boo moved into a new house with some guy friends
and we found a shed full out antique treasures
i spotted it right away
and said i want this for my birthday
he said
"i think i can handle that"


even better story
he thinks the bag is ugly
then i went to the MN state fair and they were selling this print 
in purses, clutches, shoulder bags and more
boo ya
i know good prints :)

The drink of the moment: Pumpkin Chai

I would like to blame/thank my wonderful friend
* i say blame because now i want this drink constantly
She blogged about this and i didn't even know Starbucks had this
i went to work late just so i could go get one haha

I would emphasize the PUMPKIN and the CHAI part 
so they don't make a Pumpkin Chai Latte

Fall Activities: Baked Apples

When i stumbled across this recipe a few nights ago
it was extremely hard to resist the urge to jump out of bed and make them immediately

Baked Apples with Brown Sugar inside!

I have had the slices of apples baked at Cracker Barrel 
but never cooked this way

Baked Apples

Super easy to do!

1) Pick out your pretty apples
2) Core the apple or cut out a little hole
3) Mix the brown sugar in (You can add raisin, pecans, oatmeal)
4) Add a little dab of butter on top of each one
5) Cook in oven for 30-40 minutes, until soft not mushy.
(put 3/4 cup of boiling water in pan with apples 
and pour over apples after you have finished baking
 for more nummy juice)

Here is the whole recipe and more pictures!

Heres the one with oatmeal:


Im no Betty Crocker but i am determined to make some fall/holiday treats this year!

The weather in Louisiana has dropped
82 degrees
and yes
i pulled out a scarf

I was raised in Minneapolis, MN
and i am wondering 
perhaps my body is used to the changing off seasons so much
that it doesn't care if it is 80 degrees
it is supposed to be FALL
and i will wear a scarf!

Jealous of Minnesota weather

Fall activities: Center piece

So in the journey of becoming Susie Home maker
i have decided i should jazz up my table with a fall inspired center piece

Here is how it happened:

Little  94 cent flowers

Fall-ish smelling candles $10
- Pumpkin Spice
- Hazelnut cream
- Warm Vanilla

Strange shaped glass bowl $4

Cut Flowers 
arrange around candles!
